The Foxes travel to Wales this weekend, where they will take on an in form Swansea side. The visitors are the favourites and a draw has historically been an unlikely outcome when the two sides meet.
After not tasting victory in their first seven Championship matches, Swansea have won their last four, with a record of 11 goals scored and 2 conceded. This excellent run has helped them climb up the table into 12th place. Despite losing four games this campaign, they’ve only lost once at home, which is down to the one goals conceded per game and 1.6 goals scored per ninety.
Last time out, they visited Plymouth and walked away with a 3-1 victory. The hosts took the lead early on and the Swans were 1-0 down at the break. However, in the second half they showed great character to bounce back and Jerry Yates levelled the scoring in the 56th minute. Oliver Cooper completed the comeback ten minutes later and Josh Key wrapped up the tie in the 90th minute.
The Foxes are well and truly on their way back to the Premier League. The quality in their squad is a class above most of the teams in the Championship and that is reflected by their current place at the top of the table. After eleven games, Leicester have won an astounding ten and only lost once. Enzo Maresca has perfected the art of attacking threat and defensive security, as his side has scored 23 goals and only conceded six. They’ve also won every game on the road this season.
Leicester breezed past Stoke in their most recent match, picking up a 2-0 win. Kelechi Iheanacho opened the scoring in the first half and Jamie Vardy scored straight after coming on in the 79th minute. Stoke only had 26% possession and 2 attempts at goal, which sums up the tie.
It looks like Leicester will continue their unbelievable start this weekend and although Swansea will put up a fight, the Foxes should be just too strong. It seems inevitable that they will have a blip at some point, but I cannot see it being this weekend.
The final prediction is Swansea 1-2 Leicester.
